Many of these award announcements were also published in Hrvatski narod, the wartime Croatian daily with offices in Zagreb.Archives of the former Croatian Chancellery of Order
Maybe a short will be useful; few years ago in Belgrade a vast numbers of documents from former Croatian Chancellery of orders were thrown into dump. (Don’t ask me how it’s possible) Fortunately some people who dig on the dump and searching for useful things had slight feeling that bunch of old document might be sold for few Euros. And so I was able to make a collection of about 1000 documents related to Croatian decorations which were bestowed to German officers.
Poglavnik and his clique must have been the fair-haired boys of the German officers in Croatia by war's end, because there's nothing German officers liked more than decorations! Even before good-looking young girls and women! Hand one a decoration and he was your friend for life.
